A seemingly career-ending knee condition pushed Brandon Roy into an early retirement in December, but the longtime Blazers guard tells David Pick of Eurobasket that he misses the game and is considering attempting a comeback.
"I've been doing some treatment and I'm trying to leave the window open to returning to basketball," Roy said. "It's really hard being so far away from the game…. If the treatment I've been looking into can work, I believe there's a good chance you will see Brandon Roy back hoopin'."
As much as Roy may miss the game, he'd have a long road back to an NBA roster. It's unclear whether it would even be possible for him to work his knees back into game shape, but we'll certainly be rooting for him. His promising career was cut short after just five seasons, during which he averaged 19.0 PPG and 20.1 PER in 321 career games.
When it became clear before the season that Roy would retire, the Blazers amnestied him to clear his $15.03MM cap figure.
